Do You REALLY Like being ‘poked’, hit by pillows, and hugged… on your Facebook Wall? I hate it! Seriously… it has become quite the spammy annoyance.

So, if you feel like I do, and want to eliminate this activity on your wall, today’s blog post will show you exactly what you need to do.

Here’s how to get rid of these annoying Facebook applications.

Click once on your “Account” link in the upper right corner to bring up the options:

Click on “Privacy Settings” to access your privacy settings.

In Privacy Settings, near the bottom of the page, under “Applications and websites” click “Edit your settings“:

Under the display of application icons, click “Remove unwanted or spammy applications.” (Caution: Don’t click “Remove all platform applications unless you’re certain you don’t want any.)

In the popup menu, select the applications you want to remove, or select all (Careful! If you use the Static FBML application, make sure you don’t remove it!)

And Wala! Poof! Gone! That’s really all there is to it! Your spammy, annoying applications are gone, and you’ll never again get an offer to adopt a snake or become a werewolf from that weird kid you knew in high school. Or whatever it is those apps ask you do…LOL.

Feel free to share this with your friends on Facebook or Twitter. I’m sure they’ll appreciate you for it (and maybe that annoying spammer, will see it too.. and stop doing it ). Hey, who knows… maybe they didn’t even realize it was annoying you.

Be sure to share your thoughts and comments below.

To Your Continued Social Marketing Success,
